This Is Kate Middleton’s Favorite Thing About Being A Mom
Kate Middleton might constantly dazzle us as the Duchess of Cambridge at her various royal events and engagements –but her first job and biggest priority
In recent years, Middleton has been very open about the lessons she’s learned so far during motherhood. She’s talked about how naive she was about being a mother before giving birth to Prince George and why it’s so important to her for her children to play outside. Now –the duchess has revealed her favorite thing about being a mom.
This is Kate Middleton’s favorite thing about motherhood
In mid-March 2019, Duchess Kate Middleton visited Henry Fawcett Children’s Centre to learn more about the center’s support programs for parents, children, and caretakers. During her visit, Middleton also shared her personal experiences as a mom.
Middleton was asked about her favorite thing about being a mom. Royal correspondent Rebecca English of the Daily Mail reported, “One woman named Finesse, who chatted with Kate about motherhood during her visit, said the duchess ‘was asking about the best thing for us as parents and told us that for her it was getting hugs from her kids.'” How sweet is that?
Kate Middleton said this is the hardest thing about being a mom
Still, being a parent is not always easy. Though Middleton has help with her littles from their Nanny Maria Borrallo, she still understands the struggles of motherhood.
During a Jan. 2019 engagement for the charity Family Action, Middleton was very candid about some of the hardships of motherhood– calling it both hard and lonely. She said, “It’s so hard. You get a lot of support with the baby as a mother particularly in the early days, but after the age of one, it falls away. After that, there isn’t a huge amount — lots of books to read. Everybody experiences the same struggle.”
Kate Middleton and Prince William are most concerned for the children’s emotional well-being
A royal insider revealed, “They are very keen to allow George to spread his wings as a child and won’t ever do what people expect them to do when it comes to their children.”
During The Royal Foundation’s 2019 Mental Health in Education conference, Middleton said, “How critical it is, everyone looking after children at a critical time, teachers, parents, and everyone who’s caring for them, how important it is that we get it right. I didn’t know what some of the issues that perhaps we take for granted here as experts know about, but it’s being able to translate it to those who don’t have the training in a way that the points come across clearly.”
